COFFEE HOUR VOLUNTEERS FOR 10:30 AM SERVICE ARE NEEDED FOR ALL SUNDAYS DURING JULY AND AUGUST.

“Service” is a very important and wonderful way to give back to God and our church.  Coffee Hour is very important for fellowship and for welcoming new members into the parish.  Oft times it might be the only opportunity for our parish family to socialize and for visitors and new members to meet us.  Sign up sheets are located on the back table.  As our Lord said, “It is more blessed to give, than to receive.”

 

Our ushers set up tables and prepare the large coffee and hot water urns.  If you volunteer for coffee hour, please come early and help set the tables and stay to help clean up afterwards.

ATHANASIAN CREED

We will  recite the Athanasian Creed in place of the Nicene Creed this morning.  Please refer to the insert.

 

The Catholic Church in the Anglican tradition uses three creeds in her worship: the Apostle’s Creed; the Nicene Creed; and the Athanasian Creed.  The Athanasian Creed is named after St. Athanasius, though it probably was not written by him.  The creed is recited on certain feast days, such as Trinity Sunday.  It remains an authorized statement of right belief, with a short and clear exposition of the doctrines of the Trinity of the Persons of God, and the twofold nature in the one Divine Person of Jesus Christ.

COMMUNION RAIL

Our beautiful new Communion rail has been given by John Davis and his sister, Sister Ann Davis, in loving memory of their parents and to their dear friend, Sister Mary Luke. Sister Mary Luke was known for her love of children, particularly the less fortunate. She worked tirelessly to bring them to Christ and to meet their most basic needs. John and Sister Ann expressed a desire for something beautiful for St. George’s in Sister Mary Luke’s memory. The engraving on the Communion rail reads: “We thank thee, O Lord, for all those who minister to God’s children…” (Epistle side); “Given to the greater Glory of Almighty God and in thanksgiving for families…” (Gospel side).

Fr. Greer was very interested in the commissioning of the new Communion rail and he offered an explanation of its significance in his Commentary on the Mass. An excerpt of what he had to say, along with photos of the inscriptions on the railing, can be found on our church website (it may be a few days before this is posted). Go to stgeorgeanglican.org.  Look up category, “New Communion Rail” under the navigation tab, “Worship.”

ICON OF ST. GEORGE

The beautiful reproduction of a sixteenth century Russian icon of St. George has found its home in the church sanctuary. The icon was given anonymously by a parishioner to the greater glory of almighty God and in memoriam of Father Yates C. Greer, the faithful priest and loving, caring pastor.  The icon was unveiled and blessed during the Bishop’s visit on St. George’s Day. Please visit our church website to read Judith Greer’s letter expressing her gratitude for all of the love and support she has received from parishioners. Go to the navigation tab “Worship” and look for the sub-heading, “The Great Teacher – Fr. Yates C. Greer” (please wait a few days for this posting).

 

NEW VOTIVE CANDLE SHELVES 

The two votive candle shelves under the della Robbia sculpture of the Blessed Virgin with Child and the icon of St. George were given by Janie Brown in loving memory of her mother, Mary Jane Miller. Mary Jane had a unique calling for intercessory prayer. She often petitioned for the intercessions of the mother of Our Lord while praying the rosary. The Anglican Church has always encouraged intercessory prayer including petitioning for the prayers of the saints who have passed into eternity. The lighting of candles at icons of saints is also an early Church practice offering the faithful a helpful devotional.

ST GEORGE HAS A NEW WEBSITE!
Our parish’s new website made its debut The Saturday after Ascension Day! It is the next generation in websites and offers both parishioners and the public numerous resources and information about our parish and the Christian faith in the Anglican tradition. Parishioner Ginny Deering has been working with Fr. Hines for numerous months on the site. “Ginny and I are extremely excited about the site and feel it will be a real blessing to those who visit it.”, said Fr. Hines. Improvements are being made to it weekly. Check it out at stgeorgeanglican.org

ALTAR FLOWERS
We are seeking volunteers to order Altar flowers and transport them to the church each week. The florist is located in Smith’s Grocery Store at Lake Mead & Rampart. A few have volunteered but we would like to have a larger group (men as well as women) of volunteers so the burden does not fall to a few. If you live in the area of our church and/or Lake Mead and Rampart and are interested in helping, please sign the list on the table at the back of the church. Once we have volunteers, we will meet to discuss details. For questions, please speak with Fr. Hines or Sharon Zurfluh.

COFFEE HOUR VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR JUNE.

KEEPING THINGS FESTIVE THROUGH WHITSUNDAY
From Easter Day to Whitsunday is perhaps the most glorious fifty days of the Church Kalendar year. For forty days following our Lord’s Resurrection, He walked the earth and appeared unto His disciples and to numerous others. As Our Lord promised His disciples, on the fortieth day He ascended into Heaven and told them to wait for the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, who descended on the disciples ten days later (Whitsunday or Pentecost, Sunday, May 27). To distinguish these most momentous and joy-filled days in the history of mankind, the Church will adorn Herself with all the beauty She is capable of, and this will be expressed in its Masses, in its music and in its priestly vestments. One highlight will be the beautiful cope Fr. Hines will wear in the festival Masses.
